Food inflation could derail VAT increase

first_img KCS-content Tags: NULL FURTHER rises in food prices could cause annual inflation to accelerate to four per cent and endanger the government’s plans to hike VAT to 20 per cent in January, a leading City economist has warned. Henderson’s chief economist Simon Ward said that recent rises in global food commodity prices may boost annual CPI food inflation to seven per cent by late 2010 from just 1.7 per cent in June. A further increase to 10 per cent would imply annual headline inflation running at four per cent, double the Bank of England’s inflation target. “Such an increase would hit consumer spending and recovery prospects by squeezing real income and money supply expansion. It would also risk destabilising inflationary expectations, particularly if the Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) were thought likely to respond to renewed economic weakness by restarting asset purchases,” he added. “This could warrant postponing or cancelling the coming VAT hike,” Ward cautioned. He said the better-than-expected public sector borrowing numbers could justify cancelling the VAT rise, thereby cutting one percentage point off headline inflation.However, a Treasury spokesman insisted the VAT hike is here to stay, arguing that controlling inflation is a matter for the Bank of England and its monetary policy tools.Other economists have also expressed concern about the impact of rising food prices on the outlook for inflation. Barclays Capital recently raised its forecasts for CPI and RPI inflation based on food prices.

Abundan oraciones y proclamaciones para el papa Francisco

Foto de REUTERS/Alessandro Bianchi[Episcopal News Service] El papa Francisco comenzó el 14 de marzo, su primer día como obispo de Roma y líder de los 1.200 millones de católicos romanos, con una devoción privada en una basílica romana dedicada a la Virgen María, pero también rodeado de oraciones, al tiempo que un caudal de mensajes de apoyo y de palabras de esperanza le llegaba desde todos los rincones del planeta.El Rdo. Tomás Mansella, sacerdote [episcopal] nacido en la Argentina, describió al nuevo papa, a quien conoció cuando era aún el arzobispo Jorge Mario Bergoglio de [Buenos Aires,] Argentina, como un hombre de profunda humildad y fe.Mansella, ex coordinador de traducciones de la Iglesia Episcopal, sirvió recientemente como rector interino de la catedral anglicana de San Juan en Buenos Aires, Argentina.La catedral católica romana de Buenos Aires está a sólo unas pocas cuadras de la catedral anglicana y “el ‘padre Jorge’, como él quería que lo llamaran —aun siendo arzobispo y cardenal— solía caminar esas pocas cuadras desde su residencia para asistir a varios oficios ecuménicos en San Juan”, dijo Mansella a ENS. “En muchas ocasiones él usaba el metro dondequiera que tuviera que ir.  Es muy sencillo. Dice lo que tiene que decir, y luego se sienta”.Mansella dijo que  Bergoglio es muy respetado en Argentina. “Es muy ecuménico —especialmente con los anglicanos— y un hombre de oración y de gran espiritualidad… Con frecuencia se ha pronunciado a favor de la justicia social. Pero, debido a que ha condenado la actual corrupción oficial argentina, no es muy querido por los poderes fácticos. Acaso por ejercer una gran influencia, él será una fuerza para reformar la curia romana. Pero no hay que esperar grandes proclamaciones”.Bergoglio sirvió como arzobispo de Buenos Aires desde 1998. El papa Juan Pablo II lo nombró cardenal en 2001. Es el primer no europeo que preside la Iglesia Católica Romana en más de 1.000 años.Poco después del anunció del 13 de marzo, la obispa primada Katharine Jefferts Schori dijo en una declaración que la Iglesia Episcopal orará por el nuevo obispo de Roma “y por la posibilidad de un diálogo constructivo y de cooperación entre nuestras iglesias”.El arzobispo de Cantórbery, Justin Welby, también emitió una declaración. “Le deseamos al papa Francisco toda suerte de bendiciones en las enormes responsabilidades que ha asumido en representación de los católicos romanos de todo el mundo”, dijo, llamando al nuevo pontífice “un pastor compasivo de genuina estatura que ha servido a los pobres en América Latina y cuya sencillez y santidad de vida son notables”.Al principio hubo una confusión respecto a si Bergoglio había tomado su nombre papal en honor de Francisco de Asís, fundador de la orden franciscana, o de Francisco Javier, uno de los primeros siete jesuitas y santo patrón de los misioneros catolicorromanos.Según informes de prensa, el P. Federico Lombardi, portavoz del Vaticano, dijo que el nuevo papa había elegido el nombre en honor de San Francisco de Asís.La Rda. Margaret R. Rose, subencargada de relaciones ecuménicas e interreligiosas de la Iglesia Episcopal, dijo a ENS que ella esperaba que el papa Francisco “será un líder que se arriesgue a hacer nuevas cosas por el bien del evangelio y que siga las huellas de su homónimo [Francisco de Asís] en el llamado a cuidar de los pobres y de toda la creación. Nuestras oraciones están con él en tanto buscamos la asociación y la unidad de todos los cristianos”.El obispo Wilfrido Ramos-Orench, encargado de asociaciones globales para la IX Provincia de la Iglesia Episcopal, dijo que la elección es “un momento histórico para la Iglesia Católica Romana y para todo el continente latinoamericano. El nombre que él ha escogido es muy revelador para mí. Es de esperar que seguirá la senda de Francisco de Asís en solidaridad con los pobres, los oprimidos y los desposeídos. Que su papado abra el camino para un auténtico diálogo ecuménico y la restauración de las quebrantadas relaciones con nosotros los anglicanos y con otros organismos cristianos”.El obispo John Bauerschmidt, de la Diócesis Episcopal de Tennessee y copresidente del Diálogo Anglicano-Catolicorromano EUA (ARCUSA, por su sigla en inglés), dijo que la elección “era un signo de esperanza para todos los cristianos”.“La elección al mismo tiempo del primer papa de América Latina y del primer miembro de la Sociedad de Jesús en detentar este cargo abre nuevos caminos”, le dijo él a ENS. “Pido que el papa Francisco siga edificando las buenas relaciones que se han desarrollado entre anglicanos y catolicorromanos a lo largo del último medio siglo, al tiempo que también abra nuevos caminos de su propio iniciativa en la búsqueda de la unidad a que Jesús nos llama”.La Sociedad de Jesús, cuyos miembros son llamados jesuitas, es conocida por su obra misionera y su compromiso con la justicia social y la evangelización. En los primeros tiempos de su historia, los jesuitas  entraron en conflicto, más de una vez, con el papa, la curia romana y con algunas naciones, pero fundamentalmente por razones políticas y económicas, más que por razones teológicas.El Rvdmo. Gregory Venables, obispo anglicano de Argentina y ex primado de la Iglesia Anglicana del Cono Sur, definió la elección de Bergoglio como “inspirada”.“Muchos me están preguntando cómo él es realmente. Es mucho más un cristiano centrado en Cristo y lleno del Espíritu que un mero hombre de Iglesia. Él cree en la Biblia como está escrita”, dijo Venables, según un informe del Servicio de Noticias de la Comunión Anglicana [Anglican Communion News Service]. “Es consecuentemente humilde y sabio, notablemente dotado y no obstante un hombre ordinario. No es tonto y habla en voz baja, pero con mucha claridad cuando es necesario”.Por ejemplo, dijo Venables, el ex cardenal le dijo desayunando una mañana que “el Ordinariato era bastante innecesario y que la Iglesia nos necesita como anglicanos”.En 2009, el papa Benedicto XVI, predecesor del papa Francisco, creó los ordinariatos anglicanos en Inglaterra y Estados Unidos como vehículos para que ex anglicanos o anglicanos desafectos pudieran unirse a la Iglesia Católica. El controversial anuncio resultó sorpresivo para muchos anglicanos, incluido el entonces arzobispo de Cantórbery Rowan Williams, quien no había sido consultado acerca del plan pese a haber cimentado una estrecha relación con el papa Benedicto.Mientras fue primado del Cono Sur, Venables se ofreció a supervisar a miembros de parroquias y diócesis que se habían separado de la Iglesia Episcopal y de la Iglesia Anglicana del Canadá.La Rda. Alyson Barnett-Cowan, directora para Unidad, Fe y Orden de la Comunión Anglicana, dijo a ENS que el hecho de que el papa Francisco sea de América Latina, “que parezca ser un hombre genuinamente humilde y el que haya escogido el nombre que lleva señalan hacia un rumbo nuevo… Espero que rejuvenecerá a la Iglesia Católica Romana y le imprimirá un espíritu y una visión novedosos”.Varios primados anglicanos hicieron declaraciones acerca de la elección del papa mientras se preparaban para la entronización de Welby, su propio líder espiritual, en una ceremonia por estricta invitación que tendrá lugar el 21 de marzo en la catedral de Cantórbery.El arzobispo Phillip Aspinall, primado de la Iglesia Anglicana de Australia, dijo que el papa Francisco trae consigo “una estupenda reputación [por su activismo] en pro de la justicia social, su preocupación por los pobres y su humildad. Su nombramiento como líder de la Iglesia Católica Romana llega con gran esperanza, expectativas y responsabilidad… El nuevo arzobispo de Cantórbery, Justin Welby, será entronizado en Londres la semana siguiente,  lo cual significa que dos de las mayores comuniones cristianas del mundo tienen nuevos líderes para enfrentar y abordar los retos del futuro”.La misa de instalación de Francisco debe celebrarse el 19 de marzo en la basílica de San Pedro.El Rvdmo. Richard Clarke, arzobispo of Armag y primado de toda Irlanda, dijo: “En compañía de millones de mujeres y hombres a través del mundo de diferentes tradiciones cristianas a la suya, le prometo al nuevo papa nuestras oraciones al tiempo en que él inicia su nuevo ministerio. Argentino de padres europeos, él reúne en su propia persona las culturas, esperanzas y necesidades espirituales del primer mundo y del mundo en desarrollo, de gran mérito en medio de las complejidades y recelos de nuestra tierra globalizada. Él ha sido campeón de las necesidades de los pobres y los desposeídos y, en la simplicidad de su propio estilo de vida, ha buscado reflejar la vida del amadísimo santo cuyo nombre ha de llevar en el futuro, San Francisco”.El mundo ecuménico también es un hervidero de reacciones y de palabras de esperanza y aliento.El Rdo. Olav Fykse Tveit, secretario general del Consejo Mundial de Iglesias (CMI), calificó la elección como “un giro en la vida de la Iglesia Católica Romana, pero también tiene un impacto en las personas de otras iglesias y fes”.En una declaración, Tveit dijo que siempre, a partir del Concilio Vaticano II en los años sesenta, la Iglesia Católica Romana y el Consejo Mundial de Iglesias han participado de un diálogo y una cooperación constructivos en asuntos de fe, testimonio y la unidad fundamental de todo el cuerpo de Cristo.“Hemos aprendido que peregrinamos juntos en el único movimiento ecuménico, y estamos particularmente agradecidos por la manera en que la Iglesia Católica labora con nosotros en importantísimos asuntos de unidad, eclesiología, misión y diálogo interreligioso”, afirmó. “Ahora, en estrecha colaboración con el papa Francisco, esperamos ampliar esta positiva relación con la Iglesia Católica que ha sido tan cuidadosamente promovida en el pasado”.La Iglesia Católica Romana no es miembro oficial del CMI, pero sus delegados y observadores con frecuencia asisten a sus reuniones  más importantes.En EE.UU., Kathryn M. Lohre, presidenta del Consejo Nacional de Iglesias,  expresó: “Todos nosotros hemos visto un profundo desarrollo entre los cristianos de todas las tradiciones en América Latina y a través del hemisferio sur. Oramos que todos nosotros estemos atentos y seamos receptivos al testimonio cristiano que emana de esa parte del mundo, y le deseamos al papa Francisco lo mejor de lo mejor al comienzo de su nuevo ministerio”.La Iglesia Católica Romana tampoco es miembro del CNI, pero la Conferencia Católica de EE.UU. ha colaborado activamente con el CNI en ministerios y programas ecuménicos, y católicos romanos han prestado servicios en comisiones y comités del CNI.El presidente Barack Obama también celebró la elección del papa en un mensaje “en nombre del pueblo estadounidense”.“Como campeón de los pobres y de los más vulnerables entre nosotros, él es portador del mensaje de amor y compasión que ha inspirado al mundo por más de dos mil años: que en cada semejante veamos el rostro de Dios”, dijo Obama. “Como el primer papa de América, su selección también habla de la fuerza y vitalidad de una región que configura cada vez nuestro mundo, y junto con millones de hispanoamericanos, nosotros en Estados Unidos compartimos la alegría de este día histórico.“Así como valoré nuestro trabajo con el papa Benedicto XVI, espero colaborar con Su Santidad en la promoción de la paz, la seguridad y la dignidad de nuestros prójimos, independientemente de su fe. Nos unimos con personas de todo el mundo en ofrecer nuestras oraciones por el Santo Padre al tiempo que inicia la sagrada tarea de liderar a la Iglesia Católica en nuestro mundo moderno”.— Matthew Davies es redactor y reportero de Episcopal News Service.

The aim of the project is to design an independent apartment for one person, fully equipped and with a very limited budget. Consequently, two main strategies are used: a) limit the intervention to what is strictly necessary, taking advantage of the existing distribution and materiality; and b) allocate the available budget to materials, so that construction is solved, as far as possible, through mingas and self-construction.Save this picture!© José de la TorreSave this picture!Existing floor planSave this picture!© José de la TorreThe project is located on the front façade of the second floor, facing the street through two terraces and an exterior corridor, both of which remained unused. Inside, a spacious study, a secondary bathroom, and a guest room are successively distributed. The key action of the intervention consists of moving the strip window of the guest room towards the edge of the exterior corridor, creating a narrow space where the kitchen is concentrated in 1.24 meters wide. In this space the only adaptations of electrical and water installations are concentrated.Save this picture!© José de la TorreThe materiality intended for exteriors easily matches the needs of the kitchen, allowing the study and the guest room not to be intervened beyond the furniture (the carpet floors and existing fixed furniture are preserved). To solve the kitchen sink, a protruding wooden module is built at the side exit of the corridor, which functions as storage, sink, and window furniture.Save this picture!© José de la TorreThe module optimizes the space in the kitchen-corridor and allows the necessary facilities to be taken outside to the terrace, such as the wastewater that is directed to a water purification system with aquatic plants and natural filters. This system is complemented by a series of ornamental plants, fruit trees, and a home composting system. The lower terrace is left as free outdoor space for any use, potentially to impart yoga classes by the client.Save this picture!© José de la TorreTowards the interior, the study becomes the master bedroom and the guest room is transformed into a multiple spaces: living-dining room and study, with the option of a retractable bed for visitors. This last space communicates directly with the kitchen through a slight difference of levels, so that all the activities of the department are concentrated in these two spaces and the bedroom retains a large space for indoor yoga practices.Save this picture!© José de la TorreFinally, the apartment is separated from the house through a diagonal dry-built wall, which defines the circular route between all the spaces and places the bathroom in the center of the apartment. No further modification was necessary for the bathroom.The furniture in the House in a corridor is essential for its operation. Due to the reduced space, all the kitchen furniture was designed and built to measure, so that the corridor is organized as efficiently as possible. In the same way, the dining room, the retractable bed, and the luminaires are designed and adapted exclusively to the available space.Save this picture!© José de la TorreSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© José de la TorreDifferent boards and pieces of pine wood, recycled tetrapak boards, bamboo strips, and glass are used for the furniture. Since most of the project is executed with unskilled labor, the design focuses on simplifying details. Simple joints are used for the pieces of wood, without piecework or elaborate joints; in this way, the construction is possible with the available tools without additional resources. Similarly, to solve the entrance to the house and the terraces, the stairs and handrails are designed and built with immunized wood for the outdoors.Save this picture!© José de la TorreFinally, for spaces where furniture is not built, various materials that have been recycled or reused by the client are adapted: small wooden shelves as base cabinets, recycled textiles as curtains, large plastic recipients as drawers, remains of ceramic pieces as protectors for the kitchen bench and various antique kitchen utensils.Save this picture!© José de la Torre Ecuador Houses Project gallerySee allShow lessRural Hotel in an Olive Grove / GANA ArquitecturaSelected ProjectsArchitecture & Design Film Festival 2020Event Share Area:  54 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project House in a Corridor / ESEcolectivo Arquitectos Photographs “COPY” Photographs:  José de la Torre Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Year:  Architects: ESEcolectivo Arquitectos Area Area of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/950935/house-in-a-corridor-esecolectivo-arquitectos Clipboard ArchDaily CopyAbout this officeESEcolectivo ArquitectosOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentRenovationQuitoOn FacebookEcuadorPublished on November 12, 2020Cite: “House in a Corridor / ESEcolectivo Arquitectos” [Casa en un Corredor / ESEcolectivo Arquitectos] 12 Nov 2020.

Cascaid to help NAS review its brand

first_img AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Howard Lake | 10 March 2007 | News Cascaid to help NAS review its brand The National Autistic Society (NAS) has appointed charity direct marketing agency Cascaid to carry out a review of the charity’s brand and communications to “develop a stronger and more consistent brand and key messages for its universal audience of stakeholders, supporters and donor groups across the UK”. Cascaid won a competitive pitch against three other agencies.NAS last rebranded in 2002. Charles Looker, Marketing Manager at NAS, explained the new move: “Rather then change our name and logo we are looking at developing what is behind the logo. We’ve chosen to work with Cascaid because we believe they understand our needs and can help make our brand work harder for us. We want to improve the way we talk to our diverse audiences with communications that flow across campaigns and help shapes our culture.”Cascaid will explore the charity’s brand using focus groups and one-to-one interviews with staff and volunteers, as well as with donors, members, donors, the general public, medical carers and Government service funders.Using this research, Cascaid will develop “strong and consistent brand messages, a communications guide and a revamped visual guidelines and literature system”, in order to lead future marketing communications within and throughout the organisation.NAS deals both with a complex condition and with a wide variety of people, including parents, carers, professionals and people with autism. It also delivers millions of pounds worth of care, education and training services to local authorities all over the UK.Cascaid will be looking at new messaging, new tones of voice and new ways for the charity to express itself.Reuben Turner, Creative Director at Cascaid, is a key member of the team working with NAS and said: “The challenge isn’t to change the organisation – it’s to help it express more effectively the love, care, passion and expertise behind it.”www.nas.org.uk Tagged with: Consulting & Agencies Individual giving The Good Agency  25 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Seminar in Mexico: Fighting U.S. intervention takes front burner

first_imgAna Elisa Osorio, a leader of the Socialist Party, calls for solidarity with Venezuela’s government.WW photo: John CatalinottoSome 260 leftist political activists from 39 countries, mostly in Latin America and the Caribbean but including people from around the world, gathered in Mexico City from March 27 to 29. They joined hundreds from the hosting Labor Party (Partido del Trabajo or PT) at its 18th International Seminar. Some 100 speakers, from a broad range of left political positions, spoke on many subjects with a common thread: the danger posed by Washington’s aggressive posture toward all countries south of the U.S. border and especially toward the Bolivarian government of Venezuela.Other topics near the front burner were the March 15 election of Farabundo Martí National Liberation Front member Salvador Sánchez Cerén as president of El Salvador, the successful March 26 general strike in Paraguay, and the worldwide capitalist economic crisis and its accompanying high, long-term unemployment. They also discussed the continued U.S. intervention against Syria in the Middle East and against Ukraine in Eastern Europe, which has provoked a confrontation with Russia.Attracting even more participation than usual, the seminar featured American political leaders Carlos Fonseca of Nicaragua’s Sandinistas; former Honduran President Manuel Zelaya; Che’s daughter, Dr. Aleida Guevara of Cuba; professor Alberto Anaya, head of the PT; and Nidia Diaz of the FMLN of El Salvador. Elected officials from national legislatures of Venezuela, Nicaragua, Argentina, Costa Rica, Mexico, Bolivia and others were there, as well as comrades from parties in the governments of Brazil, Uruguay and Cuba. There were also representatives from parties in power in China, Vietnam, Laos and the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea.Daily mass organizing was also on the agenda. Yvonne Muñiz of Cuba, showed with a PowerPoint demonstration combining photos, videos and music, how the Cuban government has involved whole communities in planning and construction of public spaces. A speaker from Nicaragua underlined the gains made by women, who have more than 40 percent representation in the parliament, almost all from the Sandinista Front.Berta Joubert-Ceci, from Workers World Party USA, got a standing ovation when she pointed out the enormous advances in the participation of women in the seminar itself and their many contributions. She then appealed for international actions in solidarity with the struggles of low-wage workers on all continents, including in North America.There was detailed discussion of the situation in Mexico, of which the most pressing issues at this time are the imperialist-promoted attempt to privatize the national oil company, Pemex, disguised as a “reform,” and the attack on various labor unions.Syria, Ukraine, VenezuelaWhile Venezuela was on the front burner at the seminar, the participants were also concerned with the imperialist-provoked civil war in Syria, which Lebanese activist Leila Ghanem reported on, and with the ongoing U.S. and European Union intervention in Ukraine that threatened to bring the NATO military alliance into a hostile confrontation with Russia on that country’s border.A speaker from the Communist Party of the Russian Federation focused his presentation on the criminal imperialist intervention in Ukraine, as did some of the speakers from European communist parties. A representative of WWP included Ukraine as the latest on the list of countries that world imperialism, led by the United States, was attempting to reconquer and recolonize following the collapse of the Soviet Union. He also called attention to the demonstrations WWP  held in 19 U.S. cities in March that demanded “No war against Russia! U.S. imperialism out of Syria, out of Venezuela, out of Ukraine!”Ana Elisa Osorio, from the national committee of the governing Socialist Party of Venezuela, explained the situation in her country as of March 28: “There are still six of our 335 municipalities suffering from the actions of fascists backed by opposition mayors, and these actions have killed 37 people.” The corporate media, she said, have completely distorted the situation, charging President Nicolás Maduro with the deaths, which is the opposite of what really happened.While the current crisis in Venezuela may be under control, no one thought the attacks from “the Empire” were ending. In addition, many speakers saw the assault on Venezuela not in isolation but as an attack on the left governments, from the most social democratic to the most radical, in the entire region.While there have been tremendous electoral gains in many countries — starting with Hugo Chávez’s election in 1998 and from Argentina to El Salvador — in all cases, outside of socialist Cuba, the gains have been limited to a left party taking over the administration of the government. The governments range from barely left of neoliberal to social democratic to openly anti-imperialist, but nearly all share the aim of getting out from under the U.S. yoke. The state — that is, the armed forces and police — and the main media resources remain in the hands of the old ruling classes. In the best case the army is led by patriotic officers who pledge neutrality.This leaves the left governments in a fragile position. They can attempt programs that aid the workers and peasants, but are susceptible to economic and military pressure from the local oligarchs and from imperialism. As PT head Anaya pointed out, the imperialists were able to organize “a new type of coup d’etat,” for example, in Honduras in 2009 and in Paraguay in 2011, where the successor regime was quickly legitimized by an often fraudulent election.Cuban analyst Roberto Regalado raised the imperialist plan for what he called “positional warfare” to reverse the electoral gains in Venezuela, Ecuador, Bolivia, Nicaragua, El Salvador and other places. What was needed, he said, was to mobilize the masses and keep them politically conscious and active to combat this process.The Haitian delegation threw out a challenge to the seminar by asking those parties in countries whose military is participating in the Minustah occupation of Haiti to fight to have those troops withdrawn.Among the resolutions approved were those for the independence of Puerto Rico,  for freedom for political prisoner Oscar López Rivera and all the Cuban 5 patriots from U.S. prisons, and support for independence of the Western Sahara.John Catalinotto and Berta Joubert-Ceci represented WWP at the seminar.

Reporters Without Borders (RSF) is dismayed to learn that local news website editor Elchin Ismayilli has joined the long list of journalists held on trumped-up charges in Azerbaijan. At least 12 journalists, bloggers and media workers are now detained in this Caucasian republic.Transferred to Baku following his arrest on 17 February in the central region of Ismayilli, the editor has been placed in pre-trial detention for an initial period of 24 days on charges of “extorting money” and “aggravated abuse of a position of influence.”The prosecutor’s office accuses him of blackmailing a local official. Ismayilli insists that the charges were fabricated with the aim of silencing his local news coverage.A former reporter for various independent media including the newspaper Azadlig and Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty’s Azerbaijani service, Ismayilli is the founder and editor of Kend.info, a website that covers local corruption and human rights violations. He has often been the target of harassment by the local authorities in the past, including physical violence, arrests and defamation suits.“Baku’s international partners cannot continue to stand by while journalists are being packed into Azerbaijan’s prisons,” said Johann Bihr, the head of RSF’s Eastern Europe and Central Asia desk. “The contempt shown by the Azerbaijani authorities for their human rights obligations needs an urgent response from the international community. A firm stand is all the more necessary because several of the detained journalists have serious health problems that are being exacerbated by imprisonment.”No let-up in persecutionEight employees of Azadlig, Azerbaijan’s sole remaining opposition daily, were questioned by the prosecutor’s office from 17 to 20 February in the continuing investigation into the newspaper’s financial director, Faiq Amirov. Many people have been summoned for questioning ever since Amirov’s arrest last August.A request for Amirov to be released from prison and placed under house arrest pending the outcome of the investigation was rejected yet again by a Baku appeal court on 16 February, despite his serious health problems. His imprisonment has paralysed much of Azadlig’s operations and no print version has been produced since September.The free speech group English PEN meanwhile reported on 17 February that the health of Rashad Ramazanov, a blogger held since May 2013, had worsened as a result of 15 days in solitary confinement. His family says he has lost weight and is not getting the medical care he needs for various ailments including tuberculosis.A critic of the government on online social networks, Ramazanov was sentenced to nine years in prison in November 2013 on a trumped-up drug trafficking charge.On 16 February, the supreme court upheld journalist Khadija Ismayilova’s conviction on a charge of “illegal entrepreneurship.” Well known for her investigative coverage of high-level government corruption, Ismayilova spent 18 months in prison, from December 2014 to May 2016, until her jail sentence was suspended.Finally acquitted on three of the five spurious charges brought against her, Ismayilova continues to dispute the other two.Azerbaijan is ranked 163rd out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2016 World Press Freedom Index. In September 2016, a referendum reinforced the already considerable powers of President Ilham Aliyev, who is on RSF’s list of “press freedom predators.” Yesterday he appointed his wife as first vice-president, elevating her to the position of the country’s second-most senior official.

By Staff Reporter – May 18, 2016 5626 Surgeries and clinic cancellations extended Twitter SEVEN weeks ago, the Limerick Post newspaper published an article about an immigrant worker who claimed he was assaulted and intimidated to such an extent that he was forced out of his job at a Limerick Direct Provision centre.On the same day, local human rights group Doras Luimní, published a statement on their website stating that the Limerick Post had no right to publish the worker’s opinion that the incident was linked to the fact that extremists had infiltrated the Direct Provision system.The Limerick Post responded by stating that the immigrant worker was interviewed by both the news editor and the journalist who wrote the story on two separate occasions; that video and documentary evidence was secured by the paper as well as statements from other asylum seekers testifying to incidents of intimidation and expressing concern over increasing radicalisation among recent arrivals to the centres.Doras Luimní subsequently released a second statement reiterating its claims and called for the article to be retracted.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up They also notified the Limerick Post that it was facing the likelihood of a criminal prosecution for incitement to hatred and that it would also be reported to the Press Council of Ireland for publishing racist and defamatory comments.Doras Luimní director Leonie Kerins said they were “deeply concerned by the publication of this article, which is entirely unfounded and absent of fact or evidence” and accused the Limerick Post of publishing it with no “context, fact or thought given to the implications of doing so”.An orchestrated social media campaign urged its supporters to contact the paper in an effort to get them to retract the article.This escalated into a call for the editor’s resignation and the castigation of the reporter who wrote the story.Others went down the route of canvassing the paper’s advertisers to boycott the Limerick Post until the article was retracted.In an article published on April 9, Limerick Post news editor Gerry Collison said that while the paper was a vocal critic of the Direct Provision system and the injustices endured by asylum seekers, it was also aware that the faults exposed in the system had created an environment where radicalisation is a very real danger.Doras Luimní and director Leonie Kerins retracted their statements and apologised unreservedly for any hurt, damage or offence caused on Monday May 16.by Daragh [email protected]center_img TAGSApologyDaragh FrawleyDoras LuimnífeaturedLeonie KerinsLimerick PostRetraction RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Linkedin Facebook Proceedures and appointments cancelled again at UHL First Irish death from Coronavirus Walk in Covid testing available in Limerick from Saturday 10th April Printlast_img read more

The Council recommended a further reduction in the GSEs’ retained portfolios, particularly in the area of less liquid assets, by using measures that do not interfere with mortgage market stability or restrict credit access. The GSEs’ retained portfolios declined by almost 14 percent in 2014.The Council also noted that the FHFA and HUD have been working with the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) and the GSEs in the last few years to clarify the requirements for originators to buy back loans backed by the GSEs and the FHA. At the same time, however the FSOC recommended that the FHFA, Treasury, and HUD work with participants in the mortgage market to clarify their representations and warranties policies, citing “uncertainty regarding repurchase requirements as a major driver of their credit policies for GSE and FHA loans, which are often more conservative than these institutions require.”The annual report was the Councils’ fifth, and it was unanimously approved earlier this week. Among the agencies that are represented on the FSOC that helped draft the annual report include Treasury, the Federal Reserve, the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, the SEC, the FDIC, the Commodity Futures Trading Commission, the FHFA, and the National Credit Union Administration. Click here to view the entire annual report.Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac were taken into conservatorship by the FHFA in September 2008 after receiving a taxpayer bailout of $187.5 billion in order to continue operations. The two GSEs returned to profitability in 2012 but the controversial conservatorship continues, with many analysts stating they do not see it ending in the foreseeable future.
